I am a neglectful, bad blog owner...

I haven't posted in forever. And my last post was just to get some votes for the shoes I designed. :/ I promise to get better at this. I was going strong for awhile, but then everything just got neglected once my birthday came around at the beginning of November.

The good news is that I had a great holiday season in my shop! I more than doubled my sales between Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was a great feeling to know that many people wanted my art! And things are still selling now that the holidays are over, which is a good sign.

Here's one of my latest pieces. I'm playing with layering of modeling paste and color to achieve paintings like this:


I'll be adding some more paintings over the next month--my stock is kind of limited right now. I've also started offering gift certificates! Just visit http://artsafire.etsy.com to purchase them!

Also, my grandfather sold one of his originals over the holidays!


He still has some great originals available in his Etsy shop! Visit http://artbyjay.etsy.com to see them all!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! My parents were in town visiting, and we all had a blast together while they were here!
